Hi Ank. Thank you very much! I found this article about the Thunderbird.
The Native Symbol or Totem the Thunderbird means power, protection and strength.
The Thunderbird is a mythical creature that is said to be the force of nature. Located in the Pacific North-western Mountains, the Thunderbird causes the thunder by flapping his wings, and shoots lightning from his eyes. By creating rain storms he waters the earth, making it possible for vegetation to grow. Only the most powerful and successful chiefs and families use the Thunderbird in their crest.

Thank you Starlord. Your notes are always welcome! Beaver totems represent creativity and determination.

You can tell by their tails, they're beavers. Nice carving

Lovely Caty. I just looked to the link you gave a few days ago, there is this pole too. But my English is not well enough to understand it completely. I did try to see about that bird. Just love your photo.

Thank you PamCal. I think so too. The human figure at the top is holding a bird, the thunderbird. I don't know the symbolism.

Beautiful carving!

You're welcome Jim. Yes, it is different. It's called the Beaver Crest Pole.
